Sexy Come Hither Cat Eye Makeup for Fall

Lovers of sexy, come-hither eye makeup, rejoice!

The 2012 fall runway was saturated with the Bardot-esque cat eye look.  It wasn’t about the traditional perfectly retro, upwardly flipped, winged black liner.

There were modern avant-garde shapes, and many makeup artists played with color from subtle gray and green hues to a full-on ombre effect.

The look translates well to almost everyone except those with very deep-set eyes.  It especially makes close-set eyes open and appear wider.

There is a look for every style, whether you are a subtle house kitten or a roaring lioness hunting for your meal.

Makeup Looks Our Favorite Starlets Are Rocking This Summer

From studying my favorite magazines this summer almost constantly, it appears bright colors are being deliberately downplayed due to a minimalistic movement!

Seemingly effortless beauty is what I’m seeing from makeup at multiple red carpet events.

Simple Easy Summer Hair You Can Create At Home

Summer Hair img | Tampa Hair SalonHere is a very simple & easy look you can create at home or recommend to your stylist.

Personally, I think the summer is a beautiful time where the look isn’t totally polished.

I prefer to embrace the texture your hair creates naturally because, lets face it, this is Florida.  The heat and humidity will get to it no matter how much you smooth and straighten it.  So take a deep breath and save yourself the hassle.

It is easy, but you must apply the proper […]
